× This production of Letters from Anne and Martin balances the experiences of both legendary figures with the inspirational words of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world. Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl not only serves as a reminder of the atrocities experienced during the Holocaust, but of the importance of learning to accept our differences and embrace diversity. Furthermore, in response to his arrest during a peaceful demonstration and the defense of his strategy toward nonviolent resistance to racism, Martin Luther King Jrs. Letter from Birmingham Jail, is one of the most important written documents of the civil rights era. To this day, Anne & Martin’s words still resonate as a testament to how one voice can carry the voices of millions that have been silenced.

This unique adaptation of combining their iconic words illustrates how both Martin Luther King Jr. and Anne Frank were born during the same year and although they lived on continents 5,000 miles apart and suffered fates in different decades, they still shared parallel experiences living in the shadow of hatred and prejudice. Despite being faced with unfair persecution, he in the Jim Crow South and she in Nazi-occupied Holland, the African-American Civil Rights Movement leader and the Jewish Holocaust victim, believed in fairness and justice for all. This performance will show how injustices still exist and also promote constructive ideas on how to confront intolerance and discrimination today.
